So I was reading this old thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=386263&p=1 and I'm almost convinced to start raising the scary looking, icky things. But a couple of questions. I don't know if Pet Duck Boy is still around but maybe other people here raise them. 1) Dubias only breed at high temps, which means that they won't escape into your house. But how do you keep the temps high enough for breeding without getting an awful electric bill? I was thinking of a small reptile heater but I don't know if that would be enough and I don't know if the amount of food I would raise would offset the cost of the electric. 2) If you have to buy roach chow, are you still saving money? Does the cost of the roach chow outweigh what it would cost if you simply bypassed raising roaches and went out and bought some other kind of high protein food such as fish meal or koi pellets? Anyone want to convince me that this horrifying idea really is a good one?
